Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Railroad Earth and Amasa Hines added to Bonfire Block Party lineup
Bonfire Brewing has announced that five more bands have been added to its 2019 festival lineup, bringing the total amount to 10 bands announced so far. Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Railroad Earth and Amasa Hines will all play on one of two main stages on Broadway Street, while Vail Valley favorites, The Evolution and The Sessh will play the Bonfire Stage located on Second Street. Tickets are now on sale for the fifth annual Bonfire Block Party, taking place May 31 through June 2 in downtown Eagle. Three more bands will be announced in the weeks leading up to the Block Party.
Previously announced bands include the North Mississippi Allstars, J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, Ripe and The Lil Smokies — all groups are festival veterans around the country, but each are making their first-time appearance at the Bonfire Block Party.
“We’re really proud of how the lineup has shaped up this year,” said Ted Wenninger, of Optimum Events, co-producers of the Bonfire Block Party in a press release. “We go into the booking season with a pretty heavy wish-list, not knowing what we’ll get on the other side, but this year’s bookings have come together exceptionally well. We really think there’s something for everyone over these two days of live music, Bonfire beer, food vendors and everything else Eagle has to offer.”
